Possibilities

Standard

*
tall piles of books
tall piles of paper
tall piles of drawings
tall piles of note taking
tall piles of poems scribbled

a few empty jars cleaned out
I live in my ideal city pushed
back in the corner I sit
each title a windows’
line each space

a possibility

.

Il volo

Standard

*
la vita come
scuola ci prepara
ad un altro mondo
ci accoglie prima
il nido poi il volo
.

Some Sundays posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry, feel free to enjoy them. On Tuesday post will be in English as usual.

Poems Come

Standard

*
when you honor
three layers of mountains

brown beige and purple
straight ahead of you

against a bright blue drape
not noticing the golf ball

poems come floating
the crystal breeze

This poem is part of the collection California Notebooks 02 written in Indian Wells, California.

Aprile 2021 – Inedita

Standard

Sundays’ are dedicated to Italian Poetry

siamo evanescenti

siamo temporanei

.

siamo sospensione

del fiato divino siamo

la pausa tra le parole

.

siamo il sacro steso

alla luce quotidiana

On Tuesday poems will be posted in English as usual.

Sì, il martedì le poesie saranno in inglese come sempre.

To The End

Standard

*
we all walk
bundled up on
winter days
but the dogs

jump for joy

the old man
will not sit by
his fire he takes
himself out

slowly stretching
his steps next
to the lines
of poplars

he will walk to
the end not
a thought
of surrender

Attendo

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*
attendo che questa
poesia mi crolli addosso

come una cascata

che porti via un sudore
inutile che riempia
di frescura la mia gola

assetata di armonia

che tessono poco
queste mie mani

.

.

Yes, on Tuesdays the poems will be in English, as usual.

Sí, il martedì le poesie saranno come al solito in inglese.

Asking You

Standard

*

don’t many of us
in this life get the chance
to be human

.
even if for a brief
moment of vulnerability

.
tenderness entwined in
with love and forgiveness
embracing mistakes

.
ours or others
understanding
there are no podiums

.
but one race
just one step
following
the other

.
one person
looking after another

keeping our necks oiled
to turn around

any given time

.

.
